A near disaster for dinner tonight.

I offered to make some broccoli and stilton soup for dinner this evening but my wife complained that when I make it I put far too much pepper in it. Hmm I was miffed at the criticism of my culinary skills. I chopped the broccoli and an onion put it in the pot. When I went to add salt half of the tub fell into the pan. I had to quickly rescue it by rinsing all the salt off and then adding no more. I cooked it pepperless as she did not want pepper but then added it to my bowl after I had made it. Once it was cooked I crumbled the Stilton Cheese into the soup and whizzed it with a hand blender so that it was all mixed up and then added some double cream. We had it with some beautiful crusty bread. I am glad I made the soup this evening as it has turned slightly colder this evening. It is warm and certainly filling and probably a zillion calories with the cream and the cheese. It is quite filling so is therefore quite substantial. Time for a coffee now prior to going to bed. I hope you have all had a pleasant day today.

No not these days but I do take a turn cooking. I used to cook every day when I was younger and we worked opposite shifts but not now. Happy New Year to you and Mike. I hope you have a wonderful time and next year is an even better year for you,
